11 New English Bible (New Testament) Passage New Testament in Greek (UBS.Ed.26)

9And so I say to you, ask, and you will receive; seek, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened. κἀγὼ ὑμῖν λέγω, αἰτεῖτε, καὶ δοθήσεται ὑμῖν· ζητεῖτε, καὶ εὑρήσετε· κρούετε, καὶ ἀνοιγήσεται ὑμῖν.
10For everyone who asks receives, he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
 πᾶς γὰρ ὁ αἰτῶν λαμβάνει, καὶ ὁ ζητῶν εὑρίσκει, καὶ τῷ κρούοντι ἀνοιγήςεται.
11'Is there a father among you who will offer his son Some witness insert: a stone when he asks for bread, or ... a snake when he asks for fish, τίνα δὲ ἐξ ὑμῶν τὸν πατέρα αἰτήσει ὁ υἱὸς ἰχθύν, καὶ ἀντὶ ἰχθύος ὀφιν αὐτῷ ἐπιδώσε;
12or a scorpion when he asks for an egg? ἢ καὶ αἰτήσει ᾠόν, ἐπιδώσει αὐτῷ σκορπίον;
13If you, then, bad as you are, know how to give your children what is good for them, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit Some witnesses read: a good gift; some others read: good things. to those who ask him!'
 εἰ οὖν ὑμεῖς πονηροὶ ὑπάρχοντες οἰδατε δόματα ἀγαθὰ διδόναι τοῖς τέκνοις ὑμῶν, πόσῳ μᾶλλον ὁ πατὴρ ἐξ οὐρανοῦ δώσει Πνεῦμα ἀγιον τοῖς αἰτοῦσιν αὐτόν.
